Our Boy

Life with 3...wonderful, full of laughter, never dull, joyful, busy, exhausting...I wouldn't change things for the world. I sure love my 3 amazing kiddo's, but there has been a bit of learning curve in figuring out how to manage each of them well. So blogging has been thrown to the way side a bit.
Our sweet boy is now 8 months old and such a delight! He is happy and easy going, which with two busy, loving sisters is a must. Sporting 4 big white teeth, chewing on things is a favorite pass time and oh the drool! Tru is all boy! He loves to make noise and the more physical you are with him the better. He is fascinated by the wheels on his dump truck and more than anything wants to be standing, so is pulling himself up on anything he can. Tru is not fully crawling, but manages to propel himself forward to get where he needs to go. Still preferring momma's milk, we're trying new foods little by little. Our boy is definitely getting all he needs, weighing in at whopping 22 pounds! He giggles before he eats just like the girls and his strawberry blond hair is starting to sport big curls. Tru eye's are green just like the rest of us and they sparkle and dance when he smile and laughs. He's a snuggle bug and shows his affection by holding your face or rubbing his hand across you and loves to head but...maybe he's showing that linebacker potential already.
This boy has melted our hearts, can't believe 8 months has already passed!

Thursday, June 9, 2011


I've had cranky girls on my hands these past few days from lack of sleep and all of the end of the year happenings.

Yesterday, Eden was in rare form...crying and upset about pretty much everything. I think I could have given her a bowl of ice cream and she would have been mad about it.

After dropping off Ezri to school in the morning, we ran a few errands and I had to stop and get gas. On our way to the gas station, Eden started bawling in the back of the car "I don't want to get gas Momma, I don't want to get gas!"

As I pulled into the station, I turned around and asked Lil 'E why she didn't want to get gas and she told me with alligator tears dripping down her round, rosy cheeks "I don't want to get gas, Momma 'cause getting gas gives me bad gas."

Totally struck my funny bone!

highlights from the past 7 months

Not sure where to begin after a 7 month lack in here are the highlights!

  • We found out in the fall we are expecting baby Teasley #3

  • Ezri turned 6 in December and had her tonsils out at the end of the month...was grueling but now she sleeps like a champ, has sprouted up, and I think has hallow bones because we can't keep up with her appetite

  • Found out in February that baby Teasley #3 is a little boy...we were a little doubtful, but he clearly wanted us to see that he is ALL boy. We are so excited, a whole new world in the Teasley out girls

  • In March we purchased the house Levi grew up in and began a long and intense remodel project...all thanks to Pop Pops and amazing friends for helping us

  • March also was the start to Levi's 1st season as head soccer coach at EHS. He had an amazing season...made it to the second round of state. First time EHS "man soccer" as we are now calling it has made it to state since 1986. And to brag about my hubby, he was nominated coach of the year...couldn't be prouder of him.

  • After soccer ended we had one week with Daddy home, just enough time to get us moved to our new house over Memorial Day, and now we are back into football mode with the start of spring ball

  • Still sitting in unpacked boxes due to a torn muscle in my tummy from being Mommy and working hard to get the house finished

  • Ezri will be ending her kindergarten year next week and Friday we are celebrating with a class Luau and program...lots of Hawaiian songs and hula dancing these days

  • This past weekend my beautiful friend Melissa took family and pregnancy photos for us...she did an AMAZING job...thanks dear friend

  • At 33 weeks prego, looking forward to school coming to a close and anticipating baby boy July 22

eden is 3

every year as the girls birthday's approach, i wonder where has the year gone. why does time fly so fast when you want to freeze every moment (or a least most moments). i'm truly blown away that our sweet little joy, eden joAnna is now 3. the age her big sis was when we met her...

we made the most of eden's actual birthday after celebrating with friends on halloween. eden and i had a special momma-daughter date while ezri was at school. we had yummy smoothies and she picked out a special movie and outfit at the store. we picked sis up from school and met daddy for a quick snack. when daddy got home from practice, we went to dinner at the roadhouse. it was conveniently tuesday and tuesday's at the roadhouse are all about eat free and hugh the balloon man comes! we had a great dinner and a complementary birthday ice cream sunday! when we came home, eden got to open her birthday gift from momma, daddy, and big sister...eden got her very own "american girl" doll (our generation doll from target) just like ezri. her name is lily anna and it was so fun watching the girls get so excited about playing with their dolls together! it was a wonderful day! the girls went to sleep with their dolls in jammies sleeping next to them! (sorry for the picture below, our camera is not happy these days)

at age 3, our eden joAnna is bubbly, funny, energetic and sweet. she's still in the 75% for her height and weight and starting to stretch out a little. she makes us laugh whenever she can, but has the gentlest little touch and a very sensitive spirit. she is her big sisters shadow and looks up to ezri in the most precious way...they truly are best friends! she loves coloring and creating, dancing, pretending of all kinds, playing with dolls and anything small...especially pet shops! she wants to be going to school so badly, and walks into sunday school and tuesday morning bible study childcare without hesitation because she's going to class like big sister! it's been so special having her to myself in the mornings while ezri is at school. i get to see a whole new side of her without sister around. she gets lost in imaginative play and is so creative, she's really excited about learning how to cut with scissors and put puzzles together. she is such a talker and quite the storyteller. the main character in all her stories is her "gwampa." she talks with the most adorable lisp, and has a cute little "helium" voice as my mom calls it! she's very tough and brave...she volunteered to get her flu shot before big sister and didn't even cry, but needs a band-aid for any kind of bump or ouch regardless of the location. she has the most precious prayers, and is always thankful for her sister and something silly and random like cheeseburgers.
our precious eden, we are so proud of you and the beautiful little girl that you are! you bless our family everyday and we love you beyond measure. you are a kind friend and a loving sister! your smile lights up a room and your laugh is contagious-one of the best sounds in the world! eden as you step into the next year ahead, we pray that the Lord would cover you in his protection. that he would guard you and keep you safe. we pray that you would continue to grow in your love for Jesus and always have a heart that is open to him. that you would continue to have wonderful friends around you to play with and grow with. Lord we ask that you would continue to bless eden's relationship with ezri and their bond as sisters would never be broken. Lord we thank you for eden's sweet and gentle spirit, continue to grow that in her so that she can share who you are with others. Father we pray that eden would desire to be obedient to you and continue to be filled with the contagious joy that you have given her. help us to be the parents you designed for eden to have, bless her and hold her tight in you arms Father! Jesus thank you for our precious baby girl! Amen!
